The attached letter and details are from me as Vice Chair of Luton Foodbank. Its been a very challenging time for the foodbank, with many more in our town in need, as well as disruption to just about every aspect of our operations, including almost total zero food coming through our usual collection process.
The letter sets out our needs in greater detail, and asks churches across the town to run (outdoor) collections over the weekend of 20-21 June. The attached sheet gives more detail of organising an event, staying safe and us collecting the food.
Would you be able to forward this to your networks, and encourage them to get involved in organising an event. We would love to see 15-20 churches, ideally many more, acting as collection points for their members, regular worshippers, extended community, friends and neighbours – and so allowing many in Luton to contribute food to the needy in the town.
Thanks so much.
